We were to be married at another cliff property in Negril until Tropical storm Nicole changed our plans. We arrived in Negril not knowing when or where we were having our wedding! We toured several cliff properties and chose Xtabi - I'm so glad we did!! Xtabi felt so welcoming right from the start! Sonya and all the staff could not have been more gracious! Our wedding was small - just the two of us. Having Sonya to help with all the little details and set-up was like having my own personal wedding coordinator. I really can't thank her enough for making our day so special. We stayed in cottage number one and completely adored the rustic beauty. Normally we would require a room with a/c but the breezes coming in from the cliffs were more than enough to keep us cool. I don't think we even realized until we got home that our room didn't have a tv - we were so caught up in the beauty of Negril that we never even noticed or missed it! The sea was a bit rough for swimming some days and we found the pool to be clean and refreshing. My husband is a pool operator in Florida and knows proper pool maintenance - he was impressed that the pool was so well kept especially after enduring such bad storms just a few days before. On calm days swimming from the cliffs in that crystal clear water is just breathtaking! We loved exploring the caves that are all around the Xtabi property. We found the bar and restaurant to be great with great service. I was exceptionally impressed that Xtabi allowed me to use an a/c room across the street to prepare for the wedding - at no extra cost. I think that is just above and beyond! Xtabi is not luxurious but we found it to be of great character and charm and true Jamaican hospitality! We will certainly go back and SOON!
